What if I tell you this is the the best Star Wars movie I have ever seen? It won’t come as a surprise to many of the fans of this series. Technically it is a off shoot of the franchise which is set in a time when the death star was commissioned and tested for the first time and a group of rebels set out to find the only fault in it to destroy it and the rest we already know.

You have to see it to believe it as CGI goes a notch or two higher. The battle scenes are breathtaking and then there is the new music which will soon become a cult. Rogue one directed by Gareth Edwards will be remembered as one of the true to life Star War movies to ever grace the big screen. I have heard that there where many problems during production when lot of the scenes had to be re shot or added later but the final product is as cohesive as it can get.

The acting by the lead star cast is excellent with Felicity  Jones leading the pack with Diego Luna. But the absolute surprise package was K-2SO played by Alan Tudyk. The iconic Darth Vader voiced by James Earl Jones also makes a guest appearance but an important one.

Most definitely go and see it on a big screen. The bigger the better.
